Legal Tip:- A part-time worker is protected by the Industrial Disputes Act

2 Dec

A part-time worker is protected by the ID Act and cannot be fired at the will of employer

A part-time worker will be a workman and entitled retrenchment compensation as provided by section 25 F of the Industrial Disputes Act stating that termination without payment of retrenchment compensation will be illegal. A part-time worker can not be fired at the will of the employer since he /she is equally entitled to job protection guaranteed under the Industrial Disputes Act. Hence the termination will be treated as illegal and part-time employee will be entitled to reinstatement with consequential benefits.
